In an interview with Jim & Kim radio show on 102.7 in New York Tuesday, he was asked what he thought.

He added, "I like Miley. I like her a lot. I think she's young, she's letting everybody know she's growing up."
Was it a bad career choice?
"It's the VMAs. It's not like she did it at the Grammys," continued Timberlake. "Like, let her do her thing."
Her went on: "Madonna, wedding suit, humping the stage. Britney, strip tease. This is not an uncommon thing. I actually thought all the bears were really cool."
